Economic Pulse

June 2019

The Bank of Ireland Economic Pulse came in at 90.7 in June 2019. The index, which combines the results of the Consumer and Business Pulses, was up 0.5 on last month’s reading but 7.4 lower than a year ago.

With the domestic economy putting in a good performance, households were more upbeat about the here and now and their own financial situation this month. But given the increasingly unsettled backdrop in the UK and beyond, some nervousness about the economic outlook was evident among consumers, with firms generally more circumspect about near-term prospects for business activity as well.
